A series about Sisi will be shown at the end of next September.
Netflix has good sense when it comes to series, and presumably they don’t make fun of the fact that they’re about a real Hungarian historical “star.” About Queen Elizabeth of Hungary (and of course about the Austrian Empress) will present the series on September 29.
The beautiful Sisi has been an excellent cinematic subject ever since her hits came out in the 1950s with the no less charming Romy Schneider role. Now 24-year-old German actress Devrim Lingnau will play the young empress in the 6-part series.
The assassin of Sisi, that is, Queen Elizabeth, was buried beheaded
It’s clear that Netflix wants to ride the success of The Crown, which is II. It deals with Elizabeth’s life and reign, in the usual, curvy and fun form of a streaming service provider. Presumably, Sisi’s series Die Kaiserin (or The Empress) will follow this trend and will not only highlight the good years, but will also follow the story of Ferenc Joseph’s wife until her assassination in 1898.
German Philipp Froisson will play the imperial royal husband, who would be a slightly different character than the elegant and restrained Karlheinz Böhm in the Romy Schneider films (the actor who died in 2014 wasn’t pure in real life, by the way).
A great discovery: now you can listen to the voice of Josef Ferenc – video
The Netflix series will not lack in humorous and lively details, for example, it attempts to present Sisi as a contemporary fitness woman. Every morning, she started her day with 20 pull-ups, and only then was she stuffed into her tight corset to give her a 48cm waist, but she also loved to spend her time riding and hiking.
Of course, the young empress’s passion for beauty care could not be ruled out from the series either. She was known to be fond of violets, but she often bathed in goat’s milk, drank salted egg whites to reduce stomach bloating, and washed her beautiful hair with eggs and brandy often.
